from egypt in a statement from martha's vineyard. we'll get the tape playback from the news conference and we'll reair it in full. president obama's comments come on the heels of an attack by pro-morsi supporters. this is what is happening on the streets of cairo 24 hours since the arab spring upriding. supporters of ousted muslim brotherhood president mohammed morsi are not backing down. here's what we know right now at least 525 people are dead. more than 3700 injured in the des make of two protest camps and incredibly egypt's health ministry says those numbers are expected to rise. hopes for democracy are fading fast. the vice president stepped down. protesters said they'll rather die than give up the fight. the big question now what can the u.s. do? nbc's attorney correspondent is in cairo, bring us up to speed. >> the situation on the ground remains extremely volatile. within the last couple of hours there's been a massive protest on one of the government buildings on a cairo suburb, hundreds of protesters approached that government building, effect lively torching it molotov cock
welker in martha's vineyard with the president. any indication what we'll hear from the president this morning? >> well, i think you will here president obama continue to condemn the violence in the strongest possible terms, sort of reiterating what secretary of state john kerry came out and said yesterday. i don't expect that he will announce a major shift in u.s. policy, chris, however, i wouldn't rule out that we will hear slightly new rhetoric today and possibly some new steps that the administration plans to take. we know that the administration has been reviewing the $1.3 billion in military aid that you just mentioned. we also know that they are considering delaying a military exercise called the bright star military exercise. this is a biannual event which includes the united states and other countries, involves thousands of air and ground forces from the u.s. it's set to take place next month. so this would be a strong symbol of u.s. opposition to the violence, and the ongoing unrest in egypt if the united states were to delay this event. those are some of the things that
in martha's vineyard. an affluent island off the coast of massachusetts. this is the fourth year the president stayed in a private home on the island. the first first lady, the two daughters and the family dog bo will all make the trip. and joining us now from the island of the swells, fox news white house correspondent. now, i've went going to martha's vineyard forever. i went there when it was like poor people on the island. now they've thrown them all out. the real estate is unbelievable. when president obama first started going, remember, president clinton went up there as well. the reason they go is because a lot of democratic fund-raisers, big dems up there. they stay for free. so that's why the president is going, right? >> well, they don't actually stay for free. they rent the property. the reason they go is that the last two democratic presidents including president obama don't own or didn't, when they were in the white house, own their own vacation properties. remember, the past three republicans, bushes 41 and 43 and ronald reagan had large vacation homes in walker's p
goler traveling with the president in martha's vineyard that could leave you paying more out of pocket. good evening, wendell. >> reporter: good evening, shannon. the concession involves the cap on out of pocket costs to go into effect next year, it could double costs for people that use one to manage medical coverage and another for prescription drug benefits. as the president settled in to vacation life on martha's vineyard, word of a new obama care concession to insurance companies, involving the $6300 a year cap on deductibles and co-pays that was supposed to go into effect next year. officials say insurers sometimes use different companies to administer medical coverage and drug benefits, their computers don't always talk to each other. in those rare cases, people could pay twice the out of pocket costs. this ceo says the president was right when he warned there would be a learning curve. >> they're trying to recreate many of the things insurance companies got good at doing. what they're going to learn is this is not so easy. >> reporter: the latest concession was granted before t
together and meeting, the president is on vacation now. he's in phargt that is vineyard -- in martha's vineyard and playing golf. he has been playing with a group of gentleman, one the comcast c.e.o. after that the obamas went over for dinner. >>brian: he played with the president of the world bank. brian roberts is the c.e.o. of comcast which owns nbc universal. evidently he had to wait, the president, for brian roberts to show up. many people said wouldn't this be an opportunity to spend the day with a donor of a broadcast corporation which is very supportive of him. >>peter: i think the president is hanging with some of his solid political buddies. yes, mr. roberts is a contributor. other folks at comcast are bundlers putting together millions of dollars for the president. the president also spent time with an npr host. he's seeing a lot of folks that stand up for him on a daily basis in the martha's vineyard area. >>brian: let's talk about obamacare because that is what is still on everybody's mind. everybody is talking about obamacare and a lot of people bringing up a-rod as an
rebuke of the egyptian government. wendell goler is with the president on martha's vineyard tonight. >> reporter: egypt's most violent day since the ouster of hosni maubarak pulled the president out of vacation briefly and said the u.s. will boycott joint exercises that had been set next month. >> our traditional cooperation cannot continue as usual when civilians are being killed in the streets and rights are being rolled back. >> reporter: the biannual exercises began two years after the egypt-israel peace treaty and once a mainstay of the relationship and haven't been held since 2009 because of the continue i continuing instability. here on martha's vineyard, president obama has spent time on the phone with the national security team and briefed by the national security advisor but hasn't co hasn't -- talking about egypt's problems. >> reporter: they both have accused him of supporting the other side and so have his critics in this country. >> the president has put his thumb down on the scale on the side of the muslim brotherhood. this will resonate all over egypt and not do us a
you think about the response of the president's statements today from martha's vineyards that's being repeated? >> it's a sign of declining u.s. influence. it's part of the inability to see through to what america's real interests are. and in the case of the past couple weeks, the fact he has put a thumb on the scale in egypt on behalf of the muslim brotherhood. he did it again today essentially blaming the military and interpret government for the violence. a very slight criticism of the muslim brotherhood for torching scores of churches. but basically he blames the military in the cancellation of this military exercise aimed directly at the military. >> we look at what's going on in the streets. we see the battle between the muslim brotherhood and the military. this is a big problem for israel. it's like sitting on a powerer for israel. >> this is one of the critical u.s. interests. the camp david peace acord between egypt and israel be upheld by both sides. that means you need a government in egypt committed to the camp david agreement and that's prepared to uphold it it. neither o
in. our white house correspondent dan lothian is in martha's vineyard where the first family is on vacation. dan, why did president obama decide to take this step this week? he canceled joint military exercises between the u.s. and the egyptian military. >> reporter: that's right. he did, brianna. and the main reason is because of the escalating violence on the ground in egypt which you have just been talking about. the president condemning that violence, condemning the actions of the interim military government there and the security forces, but also there's been this sort of level of frustration within the obama administration at the slow pace of the transition from this military interim government to a democratically elected civilian government. the obama administration, at least officials within the administration, had been discussing this as an option. in fact, back in june at the time that the administration decided to delay the delivery of those f-16s, it was brought up as an option to pull out of these biannual exercises known as bright star, but it was only on wednes
. they were busy up in martha's vineyard. there could be lots of different reasons. what i don't understand, why is everybody coming down on the republicans and asking them to defend themselves. do you really believe in the constitution, like i am sure peter king doesn't believe in the constitution. give me a break, of course he does. why aren't democrats being held accountable. republicans aren't in charge of anything except the house of representatives. >> they get the blame. >> the obama team knew this "the washington post" report was coming, why didn't they get out in front of it when president obama talked about the reforms. remember the press conference before he left for martha's vineyard, about reforms, more transparency to the nsa program. they knew this was coming, that would have been a good opportunity to have talked about it and got it out. then it all would be out in the wash. >> important to keep in mind a majority of the house republicans voted to defund the nsa. >> what about the democrats, bob, seriously? >> do the democrats give a crap about anything? do they care about a
for egypt. >> so the president breaks a vacation, makes an address from martha's vineyard on thursday. talk about what he said. are we doing the right thing? are we doing enough? >> i would have called it a coup six weeks ago. in terms of democracy in the middle east has been -- that credibility has been lost. that said, the united states is going to have influence only on the margins. perhaps it can draw boundaries around which the military has to operate. by not calling it a coup, we signal we're going to learn with whatever ultimately emerges in terms of a new government in egypt. >> p.j., if we were to label this a coup, that would mean we would have to stop funding any sort of military aid, any sort of humanitarian aid support to egypt. is that true? >> well, it is true. that's why the administration has largely decided they're not going to decide. and barring some sort of horrific -- >> what is that getting us right now? the money that we are supplying to egypt, what is that doing for the united states's interests there? >> well, the united states looks at the egyptian military as the
. >> you know, i want to go back to the president's news conference martha's vineyard, took time out from his vacation to denounce the violence we've been showing on our screen. what he didn't denounce were the attacks on coptic christians and these christian churches, the coptic pope is in hiding, a great many christians as well. and yet no denouncetion from this president. why is that? >> you know, gregg, i actually think the president did a good job this week in martha's vineyard when he talked about this issue. we didn't come out and say that the islamists won the election and they should be in charge. that's a good movement from this president. i think it's a very difficult time when you have so much violence going on and you have to remember that he was speaking right after many people, 600, 7 ooshgs 00, 800, are being reported killed. he should have said the violence against the christians in egypt is absolutely unacceptable as well, but i think he got it right in balance and that hew l denounce that violence against the christians. but let's be clear. there's violence going on on

supporters of the muslim brotherhood this week alone. we go live to martha's vineyard where president obama continues his vacation. any sign from the administration of what they will or even perhaps what they will not do next? >> well, craig, good afternoon. the administration at this point is not signaling any major shift in policy when it comes to egypt. we know that president obama has been briefed daily by his national security adviser susan rice, who is vacationing here on martha's vineyard with him. and of course this past week president obama announced that he would be canceling joint military operations between the u.s. and egypt that were scheduled to take place next month. this was a strong, symbolic rebuke to military for their inability to really get this situation under control in egypt and to get the unrest under control in egypt. but what the administration has not announced is that they will be withholding or withdrawing that $1.3 billion in military aid that they give to egypt every year, and that is really the united states' largest point of leverage at this point in time.

in martha's vineyard, but it is not like the president is far from the job. wendell goler tells us about one item on the president's to do list. >> reporter: in between missing putts with golfing buddies, president obama may use some of his time on his vacation thinking about a replacement for fed chairman ben bernanke, who is leaving the most powerful economic position in the world in january. >> it is definitely one of the most important economic decisions i make in the remainder of my presidency. >> reporter: he told reporters friday that he is considering a number of qualified candidates, some experts think the short list is down to larry summers, former head of national economic council, and treasury secretary under president clinton, and janet yellin, the first woman to head the fed. >> 70, 80% of value, yellin will be the nominee. and if it would be someone else, summers, there has to be market adjustment. >> reporter: that adjustment would likely be down. but wouldn't last longs. given the fed's dual mandate, keeping inflation low and employment high, the latter should be the focus.
